How To Speak Dad’s Love Language This Father’s Day

Gift ideas for Father's Day for each love language.

With Father’s Day coming up around the corner, it’s one thing to tell Dad how much you love him, but another to make the gift (and day) more special by speaking his love language. Most people know of/their love languages, but what about Dad’s? Here’s a gift guide to make Dad feel truly loved.

Words of Affirmation

If Dad is fluent in this love language, a sweet message will make the perfect gift. 

Bring out a smile and some laughter from Dad with a card from Hug and Kiss’ Father’s Day collection ($2-5) that’s both sweet and unforgettable. 

For a sweeter surprise that’ll light up the room, gift Dad a candle with a secret message. Indigo’s Hidden Messages Candle Collection($16-29) is the perfect candidate. 

Quality Time

Spending time with Dad is a great way to show him love on his special day. Whether it’s indoors or out and about, here are a few fun ideas.

Spend time with Dad over coffee with Ca Phe’s at-home coffee kit ($125) or embark on a bonding sourdough baking adventure with The Starter Project ($30) from Nelson The Seagull.

For Dads that crave the outdoors, gift him a portable camping stove kit. Take the MSR PocketRocket Stove Kit ($134) from MEC and explore the wilderness (or backyard) together. 

Physical Touch

Some Dads feel most loved through physical touch, and if this seems like your Dad here are some gifts to make him feel special. 

Surprise Dad with a beard grooming kit, because self-care is always a nice gift. The Always Bearded Essentials Pack ($80) from MASC includes everything Dad needs for a good looking beard.

If beards aren’t Dad’s thing, gift him the Bergamot Hand and Body Wash ($30) from MASC so that Dad can enjoy a relaxing shower. 

Acts of Service

An act of kindness goes a long way, especially for Father’s Day. 

If Dad has a passion for BBQ, make his grilling season a little easier (and cleaner) with the Grand Grill Daddy Grill Cleaning Brush ($114) from Williams Sonoma, and maybe surprise him with a clean grill for Father’s Day. 

Receiving Gifts

Though gift-giving is the most common form of showing love, here are some thoughtful gift ideas that will really speak to Dad.

For wine-loving Dads, surprise him with a wine that is sure to make him smile. Gift Dad a Living Wine Label wine from 19 Crimes ($15).

Can’t settle on one gift? Get him all! The Father’s Day Giving Crates ($100) from Giving Gifts has you covered. If Dad is more of a foodie, surprise him with a locally made Father’s Day gift basket ($80) from Saul Good.

For a gift with a little more bling, give Dad a unique ring from Secret Wood’s Nature Ring Collection ($100).
